I am in a honors highschool Living envrioment(biology). I need to conduct a lab write up for my Enzyme Function lab. The purpose of this is lab is as follows
To explore the role of a catalase, and some factors that may affect it, as it breaks down hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen.
During the experiments we placed 2ml of hydrogen peroxide in a test tube and first added manganese dioxide and connected the pressure sensor to measure the rate of chemical reaction. Then we added such food as spinach potato raw, and cooked liver to 2ml of hydrogen peroxide and measure the rate of chemical reaction. So far I have written the problem for the lab write up but am not sure if it is correct. The problem was as I wrote:
Problem: With the addition of catalse and an inorganic catalyst, will the rate of chemical reactions in hydrogen peroxide increase or decrease as it breaks down into water and oxygen?
I really need help with this so please anyone that can help it will be very appreciated. Thank you
